The Love-Hate Relationship Between Women and Button Up Shirts
The silhouette of a button up is absolutely classic. Great on it's own with pants or skirts, layered under sweaters or dresses, even tied in a knot for more of a casual-chic vibe. Basically, it's a go to if you want to feel put together and confident. Or is it?

Other Style Details of the Comfy Button Up I Love
If you've followed encircled for a while you probably enjoy the journey because you learn a lot of what goes into making a garment. You see behind the scenes and you have more appreciation for what you wear. You'll also agree that encircled loves to listen to their customers, get feedback, and update designs. It's fun to see favorite design elements from various garments be fused together into something new! The back yoke seam was a lovely design feature on the Fair Long Sleeve and later the Comfy Dress Shirt (how to style here). The Comfy Button Up also looks to feature those beautifully designed sleeves, that gather so nicely at the cuff. Can't wait to get a close up of the buttons too. I know from social encircled had a hard time getting buttons that aligned with their values, but they were persistent and successful!

Other than that, fit is the same and I think the other design elements are the same more or less!
